The Shedd Institute is extremely pleased to welcome Jake Shimabukuro back to the Jaqua Concert Hall. Local Hawai'ian music aficionadoes know perfectly well what a good ukulele in the right hands is capable of. In Shimabukuro's hands, it is capable of the impossible. He has transformed the four-string ukulele into an infinitely pliable musical vehicle, capable of generating everything from crunching, Hendrix-influnced rock to sensuously swinging jazz. Rocking back and forth on his heels, his wrist moving at a hummingbird blur, he coaxes an impossibly big sound out of the little instrument as he plays a mix of lyrical originals, pop tunes (“Here, There and Everywhere”) and American Songbook standards (“Somewhere Over the Rainbow”).
In The Shedd's Great Hall at 6:00 pm before evening concerts and 1:00 pm before matinees, The Shedd offers set-menu, reservation-only meals for $18.75, $13.75 for kids 9 & younger. Each meal includes tea/coffee, salad, bread & butter, entree (vegetarian option) and dessert. Wine, beer, soft dirnks, and other beverages are extra. Make your reservation today!
